Ken Block has made a name for himself as an action sports star, turning his love of sports into a career. Alyssa Julya Smith caught up with Block on the mountains of Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival to talk about his latest Amazon Prime original series.
"The Gymkhana Files" is a Prime original series highlighting the making of Gymkhana 10, the recently announced 10th installment of his Gymkhana film series. Block says the unscripted series will be an exclusive look at what goes into the making of one of the biggest viral campaigns of all time. The series will have eight episodes of untold stories and never-before-seen footage from Block’s previous nine films.
Block also discusses the marketing that goes into the viral videos and what it takes to make a video with up to 100 million views. The prolific entrepreneur also talks about his other ventures including DC Shoes, which he eventually sold to Quiksilver.
